(Porkbelly) We were lucky to have been invited to Rialto in Georgetown, DC to try out their new Fall Menu. Rialto is located on M street off of the main strip in Historic Georgetown.
I was meeting a friend there so I some drinks at the bar.
Some Italian Beers I drank
Peroni Pastro Azzurro & Birra Moretti La Rossa
They have a very spacious bar with a good bar menu
The Restaurant is quite spacious, especially for a restaurant in Georgetown.
The manager Hannah was nice enough to give us a tour of the restaurant.
She showed us the downstairs area where they hold special events.
We were brought back upstairs and seated.
My friend ordered a Sangria, which he recommended and we got started.
Some bread to start off with
Soft yellow corn polenta with truffled forest mushroom
Primi E Secondi:
Tortelli pasta filled with pumpkin in a brown butter and sage sauce, topped with toasted almonds
Grilled Branzino Filet over Sauteed Brussels sprouts and roasted pumpkin puree
I like Branzino it is delicate and light flavor fish, the sprouts and pumpkin puree give it a nice balance and a seasonal feeling.
A solid Tiramisu
Panna cotta al cappucino con salsa al caramello e Grandella di nocciole
Probably my favorite dessert. It reminds me of a Japanese Pudding, but with more delicate and complex elements. the caramel and Grandella di nocciole really makes this the perfect dessert for those with a sweet tooth.
Overall Rialto is a very nice restaurant in a very historic and upscale neighborhood. The food taste very fresh with a great selection of beers and wines. I would recommend it to anyone in the area. Their fall menu is sure to be a success.
